Premiered January 1983 Since January 1983, FRONTLINE has served as American public television's - PBS - flagship public affairs series.

- Program Description
Broadcast: May 30 and 31, 2006: On the 25th anniversary of the first diagnosed cases of AIDS, FRONTLINE presents the definitive chronicle of one of the worst pandemics the world has ever known. After a quarter-century of political denial and social stigma, of stunning scientific breakthroughs, bitter policy battles and inadequate prevention campaigns, HIV/AIDS continues to spread rapidly throughout much of the world, particularly in developing nations. Why humanity has failed to stop this is the central question of "The Age of AIDS." The series examines one of the most important scientific and political stories of our time: a mysterious agent that invaded the human species, exploiting its frailties and compulsions - sexual desire and drug addiction, bigotry and greed, political indifference and bureaucratic inertia - to spread itself across the globe.
